I have a soft spot for these little beauties. I'm not sure if you can see in
my photo but the dial is slightly pink and it's also much better looking in person.
Sorry for my poor photos tonight I rushed a bit

19j 0s Elgin Grade 201.

Hey Rob, what a score. This one has all the bells and whistles. Great dial, hands, and case. Looks like a keeper to me!

Another one of these went off last night on
eBay it wasn't in a case but it was set up as
a 12 size like an opera watch did
anyone here get it.

Elgin Grades 201 (hunter) and 205 (OF) are lovely high-grade ladies 0-size watches, among the best Elgin made. They were expensive watches; their movements sold for $44 according to one old catalog listing I have seen. I have one of each these grades. My examples have the earlier damascening that Jerry prefers although I might prefer the more restrained Geneva stripes of the example he posted. Both my examples are in solid gold A.W.C.Co. cases.
